The two-fold aim of the paper is to unify and generalize on the one hand the double integrals of Beukers for ζ(2) and ζ(3), and of the second author for Euler’s constant γ and its alternating analog ln (4/π), and on the other hand the infinite products of the first author for e, of the second author for π, and of Ser for eγ. We obtain new double integral and infinite product representations of many classical constants, as well as a generalization to Lerch’s transcendent of Hadjicostas’s double…

In this paper we consider some integral representations for the evaluation of the coefficients of the Taylor series for the Riemann zeta function about a point in the complex half-plane ℜ ( s ) > 1 .

Closed-Form Derivations of Infinite Sums and Products Involving Trigonometric Functions

We derive a closed-form expression for the infinite sum of the Hurwitz–Lerch zeta function using contour integration. This expression is used to evaluate infinite sum and infinite product formulae

New Wallis- and Catalan-Type Infinite Products for α, e and

Abstract We generalize Wallis’s 1655 infinite product for α/2 to one for (α/K)csc(α/K), as well as give new Wallis-type products for , and other constants. The proofs use a classical infinite product

Criteria for irrationality of Euler’s constant

By modifying Beukers' proof of Apery's theorem that ζ(3) is irrational, we derive criteria for irrationality of Euler's constant, γ. For n > 0, we define a double integral In and a positive integer S

Double Integrals for Euler's Constant and In and an Analog of Hadjicostas's Formula

We give analogs for Euler's constant and ln(4/Pi) of the well-known double integrals for zeta(2) and zeta(3). We also give a series for ln(4/Pi) which reveals it to be an"alternating Euler constant."

We prove that a series derived using Euler's transformation provides the analytic continuation of ζ(s) for all complex s ¬= 1. At negative integers the series becomes a finite sum whose value is
